I understand I can sync all of those several ways:

-Using Exchange
-Using the Google option
-Using CalDAV for contacts

Which is the best way to do it?

Settings, Accounts/mail, look for a CARDDAV option. All you have to do is put your account info in. That's how I did it for my contacts, worked perfectly.

I used the plain google option. Synced contacts, calendars and mail.

You can only do Exchange if you have a grandfathered gmail account or paid.

The old CardDAV/CalDAV was wrapped into the Google option. No reason to manually setup CardDAV anymore.

Option 1. The best way is:
Exchange: Mail
Google: Calendar/Contacts

2. Since you probably can't do exchange.
Do Google all. Set Fetch to 1 Hour
Download the GMail app and authenticate it. Notifications Settings: turn off badges, and just have sounds and maybe lockscreen for push. But read in Mail.
